Full text of "Selling your Own Home"

Selling your Own Home 

You are going to, at some time; want to sell a property that you own. There can be 
any number of reasons for this decision but, whatever the reason; you want the best 
possible deal that you can get. It is important to decide from the outset whether or 
not you want to sell using a real estate agent or whether you want to sell your house 
yourself or through an auction. Prudential Real Estate is there to assist you in making 
this important decision. 

The main advantage of not selling through a realtor is that there are no commissions 
to pay. This usually results in both the buyer and seller splitting the difference. Say, 
for example, that the commission translates to 6% - on a sale of $100 000, this would 
be $6000. This commission can translate into quite a saving for a potential buyer. 

There are some other advantages as well - you are able to decide who you are going 
to let into your house - although a professional estate agent is quite good at sussing 
out serious buyers from undesirable characters, they do have a duty to show your 
house to a number of people. If you conduct these interviews yourself, you will be 
able to pick up whether or not they are serious buyers. You can also arrange to show 
the house to more than prospective set of buyers at a time. (This also lets everyone 
know that there is some serious interest in the house.) 

Of course, whilst a realtor is great at listing the benefits of your home, they haven't 
invested as much time and care as what you have - potential buyers will be able to 
better pick up good sales points from you than from real estate listings. A downside 
is, of course, that the buyers will naturally consider you biased. 

When selling your property without a property management Macarthur specialist, 
you will also be in full control of the all the sales steps. The buyer will make their 
offer directly to you and you will be able to accept or counter it directly - without 
having to communicate through a third party. 

There are, however, a lot of disadvantages to selling your property on your own and 
a case can be made that all the above-mentioned positives could turn out to be 
negative. Before you make any kind of decision whatsoever, it is important to discuss 
the matter with a professional and reputable real estate agent. Prudential Real 

Estate is interested in creating the perfect environment for you to sell your home - 
even if that means advising you to sell the property on your own or via auction. 

An agent from Prudential Real Estate will come out and give you an obligation free 
appraisal. You will also be able to fully discuss your options with them and will be 
able to then decide whether or not you want to take advantage of the personal 
service offered to them - from the marketing of your home to the vetting of 
potential buyers - all with the interests of saving you valuable time and in getting the 
best possible deal for your home.
